Bob White

Originally from Houghton Lake, Michigan, Bob White came to Seward, Alaska in 1972, when he was eighteen years old, to pursue his love of hunting and fishing. Bob has been an avid hunter since he was a boy. Bob has worked as a commercial fisherman, cannery worker, trapper, longshoreman, school bus driver, construction worker, carpenter, and gunsmith. At the time of Bob's 2010 inteview for the Exit Glacier Project Jukebox, he operated a small gun shop in Seward, as well as a flooring business. He is one of the few people who has used horses to hunt up the Resurrection River valley and other places near Seward. Bob's wife, Susan, is the daughter of Val and Jean Anderson, long-time residents of Seward.
